Just when you thought it sounded crazy for Nipsey Hussle to sell his mixtape ‘Crenshaw‘ for $100, the LA MC has just upped the ante. In a letter to Rap Radar, Hussle explained why his new album ‘Mailbox Money‘ will be going for $1000!
You read that right, $1000! Here’s what the West Side Crip had to say:
Ain’t no money like Mailbox Money. This project is about ownership. It’s about archiving what I set out to achive. In my first single “Hussle In The house” I said, “fresh of the bloc I sold dope to buy groceries/now it’s rap money no advances all royalties”. This project is about seeing that vision thru.
It will be released for free, on iTunes and via the Proud2Pay platform we built with the release of Crenshaw. There will only be 100 hard copy’s and they are $1000 dollars each. The 100 people that buy the P2P version will be granted access to a private advance listening session of Victory Lap at the secret Marathon Store we are going to open the day of the listening! More news coming soon.
With love and respect,
Ermias “Nipsey Hussle” Asghedom
The Marathon continues!
You’ve gotta respect the hustle. Peep Nipsey’s latest release below, and let us know if you’ll be one of those lining up to purchase the new project when it drops on December 20.
